Mediocre account of depression and anorexia nervosa not to mention emotional abuse and repression. It was interesting to see how an eating disorder can be triggered by depression. The author is now a psychologist so she had many interesting insights into her behaviour as a child, and of course it is always educational to see how the mentally ill were treated in the past few decades as opposed to the way they are treated/viewed now. Reminiscent of The Bell Jar in that respect.
